Owner Info

Devi Leonard

Devi Leonard

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: We fell in love with Cape San Blas our very first visit! We didn't even know it was a pet-friendly beach at the time and we've always had dogs and been dog lovers!

At the end of about 2 years we ended up owning 3 properties, all in Barrier Dunes, and were discovering more we loved about the Cape every trip! Our kids starting going to Cape San Blas when there were 4 and 6 and both are now in college. I look forward to enjoying the Cape with their families when the time comes!

When I started renting, I was a mom of young kids and realized it was a LOT of work to get ready for vacation, so I try to make it as easy as possible for folks renting with Cape Escape Vacation Rentals. I provide everything from beach chairs down to the little things you want when you're on vacation, but many forget...spice, trash bags, laundry detergent and LOTS in between. I also try to communicate as many details as possible before your vacation and provide a very complete guest information book about the area once you arrive so you don't have to do the research!

Some of our favorite things to do are: Bonfires at the beach after sunset, scalloping in the bay, kayaking, Indian Pass Raw Bar to enjoy oysters, crab legs & steam shrimp as well as great local music and company, a day poking around the stores (and eating) in Apalachicola many things!

I look forward to having you enjoy a Cape Escape soon!

Guestbook comments from the owner:

My husband and I stayed at Sea Breeze and it was great - clean, comfy, cozy and super convenient to beach and pool. Wendy was great, very responsive and helpful. This was our first stay in CSB and we loved it - we will be back!


Aug 2021

We had a wonderful time at Sea Breeze!!! The condo had everything we needed and was so close to the beach!! Our dogs loved laying out on the deck and taking in the beach air


Sep 2020

I plan on returning in December.  I loved the unit I was in, very nice setup.   I was so happy to see the beach is even more beautiful than before & the water crystal clear.  Thx again. 


Sep 2020

This was our first year staying at Barrier Dunes #52 and we enjoyed it so much we've already made a reservation for next year! We had easy access to the beach and it was a beautiful community (pool, tennis courts, etc.). We enjoyed walking around and our dog enjoyed making furry friends. The unit was comfortable and Wendy thought of everything for a "home away from home." Already looking forward to our next stay!


Mar 2019

Wendy, Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our first trip to the Cape. Sea Breeze (52) far exceeded our expectations. We found the home very clean and well stocked, (which was much appreciated). It was also very short walk to beach and pool areas. We really loved the beach (great sunset’s!), both pool areas and just relaxing. Husband really enjoyed fishing on the beach. I would highly recommend the Cape to anyone who travels with their pets. We travel with our 8yr old Maltipoo, who loves the beach as much as we do!! Pleased to find such a pet friendly place!! This was our first time to area, but hopefully not our last. We loved everything about the Cape and hope to be repeat guests at Sea Breeze. Thank you for making the whole process so easy and being available for any questions we had.


Jan 2019

It was just a wonderful vacation and we really couldn’t have asked for anything more. The condo was so well equipped, more so than any other rental I’ve stayed at. We brought beach gear with us but a lot of it stayed in the car. There were plenty of chairs and toys and gear. More than we could even use. The inside was just as cute and clean in person as it was in the pictures. Most nights we bought seafood and stayed in and cooked.
We highly recommend the Port St Joe Shrimp Co! The kitchen is so well-equipped, the cookware was awesome. There were enough plates to feed a small army, so I wasn’t always washing dishes. It was a little rainy while we were there, but we still had plenty of time to spend at the beach. We went in to the Port St Joe Piggly Wiggly to get groceries, visited the Lighthouse, and drove through the quaint little downtown area. We also drove down to Apalachicola one day, another neat little town with lots of fresh seafood restaurants.
Best of all, we relaxed and spent time playing on the beach and at the pool. Our little girl and our furry boys loved it all! My husband actually considered not having cell service to be a bonus feature! The wi-fi worked great throughout the unit too. Bethany cried when we left and we honestly can’t wait to get back. No crowds and no traffic make for one of the best vacations I’ve had. All of our friends and family have asked us how we found it and they want to check it out now too! Maybe we should have kept the secret to ourselves though! Thanks again, Wendy and all the staff for such a great vacation. Hope to get back your way sooner than later!


Jul 2017

We stayed at Sea Breeze for two weeks in January. Our only regret is that we didn’t plan to stay longer! Everything about Barrier Dunes was absolutely perfect for us…from outstanding communication with Wendy, to the beautiful condo and its location near the beach, and especially the fact that the condo AND the beach were dog friendly. We had never vacationed with Charlie (a full-size Collie!) before, but he loved the beach as well. We met so many wonderful, friendly people (and their fur-children!) and we are planning to go back next year for a month.
What we loved most, besides the dog-friendly atmosphere, is that Cape San Blas is quiet this time of year, and somewhat remote. Golf and restaurants aren’t too far away, though. We found a couple of restaurants that allowed Charlie to come along too! We met a couple on the beach that was from our home state and the guys played golf a couple of times. We got lots of exercise walking through the neighborhood and on the beach; when it was cool outside we took the time to get caught up on some reading. We give Sea Breeze and Barrier Dunes an A+!

Perfect!

We loved our stay. It was clean, comfortable and convenient. The gulf-front pool and boardwalk to beach were just steps away. This was our first stay in Cape San Blas but we will definitely be back!

Fantastic stay!

This is our third stay on Cape San Blas and definitely our best. The rental process was easy from start to finish and Wendy was exceptionally prompt in responding to questions leading up to our visit. The condo itself was very comfortable (the beds are wonderful), with awesome little touches such as paper and soap products, well- stocked kitchen, beach chairs and toys, and a filled spice rack that includes any spice you would need for a great meal. The condo was spotless and perfectly located. The pool and ocean are just steps away, and there are great views of both from one of the bedrooms. We plan on returning and will definitely book Sea breeze again!

Convenient to Beach and pool.

Extremely well stocked condo. Everything you could possibly need in kitchen. Cleanliness was exceptional. They don't exaggerate when they say it's close to the beach ( 30 second walk ) and pool is almost as close.

The best!

Love renting from Cape Escape, each and every time! Wendy is caring, accessible; her units have more than what you’ll need and there is never a disappointment when staying in any of them. My family has stayed in The Cape Escape units for years and years and we will always count on her to help our vacation stay feel like home. Super nice and selfless owner and more than willing to meet your specific needs.

Relaxing Retreat Steps from the Gulf

This is the second time we've stayed at Sea Breeze. It's very close to the beach with amazing views. We enjoyed riding bikes and going for a run on the path on the Cape as well as morning strolls on the beach and beautiful sunsets. We visited the trading post and seafood market a few times and found everything we needed to cook great meals. Our aussie loved joining us for the trip as well - we really enjoy Barrier Dunes and cannot wait to come back!

BEST BEACH THERAPY EVER!

We booked this condo on short notice. First time at The Cape. Wendy was so amazing in helping us with things to do and places to go. She provides an entire book (very well organized) in the condo with names, places, numbers, etc. We loved the condo. It was exactly what we needed. Great views and location. We just walked across the street and were on the beach in under a minute. The beaches were beautiful, clean, uncrowded. We rented horses for the sunset ride, hiked to the Donna Kay and picked up shells, walked the 9 miles of private beach at the state park, shopped in Port St. Joe and Apalachicola, had dinner and cocktails at the Blue Parrot on St. George Island, had oysters and shrimp at Indian Pass Raw Bar, and met the most wonderful people from all over who we watched the sun set over the gulf with. The condo is well stocked with everything you need, clean, comfortable, roomy and in a great location the north end of the cape and close to the state park. Would we stay again????? Absolutely. Loved every second of it.

Little Piece of Paradise!

This is the third year that we stayed in Sea Breeze at Barrier Dunes, and we have never been disappointed. The short access to the gorgeous beach is a real bonus too! There are two wonderful swimming pools available as well. Sea Breeze is well equipped for guests and we're always quite comfortable there. The kitchen is well stocked and there's also an outside closet full of beach items....chairs, beach cart, beach toys, etc. Barrier Dunes is an excellent place to stay with dogs, also, and during our many walks each day we enjoy chatting with other residents there and meeting their furry friends. It's a nice, quiet area which just increases the relaxation factor ten-fold. We would highly recommend both Sea Breeze and the Barrier Dunes area!

Excellent Choice...

This was our first trip to Cape San Blas. We stayed for the entire month of January.We found our condo via internet research. The customer reviews represented critical information for us. The reviews of the condominiums that Wendy manages, and of Wendy herself, are excellent. That inspired tremendous confidence and helped us make the right decision. The condo is excellent and Wendy is amazingly responsive to any/all questions/concerns. One example of this is our microwave oven went out on us one day, but Wendy had a brand new one purchased, delivered and installed in less than 24 hours. Her response to this unexpected problem was as good as it gets.We had a wonderful stay at the condo, which made for a wonderful trip to Cape San Blas.Footnote: The Barrier Dunes condominium complex is a great choice if you are social and even more so if you have a dog. Everyone we met was incredibly friendly, engaging and helpful. You will meet so many good people walking their dogs(s) in the complex and on the beach. If you enjoy making new friends, this is the place for you...

Our escape is the cape!

Our stay at Sea Breeze 52 was simply the best! We literally booked 3 days before our arrival. Wendy was great to work with. She was efficient in her response and had everything organized for us. Our condo was very clean, fully stocked, and close to the beach. I would definitely rent from Wendy again with NO hesitation. We have been coming to the cape for 20 yrs and once again a perfect vacation. Thank you Wendy for sharing your home, being personal with your emails, and making our trip one to remember!!!

Another Wonderful Stay at Barrier Dunes

We just got home from our third stay at Barrier Dunes, renting through Cape Escape. It was a wonderful stay as always. We have rented the same unit (Sea Breeze) every time because its our home away from home and because of its proximity to everything on property. It's always clean, it's nicely decorated, it's pet friendly, and it's so easy to work with Wendy and with Cape Escape. We look forward to coming back again next year and we highly recommend them (but we don't want the word to get out about how awesome the Cape is!

Nice Vacation

My husband and I really enjoyed this townhouse. It was perfect for us and our dogs. It had everything we needed including a nice selection of spices for cooking. It was nice to not have to pack beach chairs as they were provided. The neighborhood is so dog friendly. The townhome was just steps away from the beautiful beach and beachfront pool. It was also nice to sit out on the back deck and listen to the fountain in the pond and watch the turtles. Overall it was clean and exactly as described. Thank you for a relaxing place to unwind. Next time we hope to stay for a couple weeks.

Beautiful place and great access to a beautiful beach.

Barrier Dunes is a great complex located on a beautiful beach. Wendy was wonderful to work with, checking in several times to make sure our stay was going well. If you are looking for a little quieter beach than other Panhandle beaches, this is the place. Very pet friendly. Very nice pools and Sea Breeze is a very short walk to the sand. Hope to return some day.

Great place to relax and enjoy a special part of Florida

Barrier Dunes is a great place to stay in a special part of Florida. The condos are a home away from home: a place where you can concentrate on exploring the beach and so many nearby areas that are unique to this part of Florida.The condo is always clean and everything is provided for a great vacation.Each year we visit, the features and amenities are enhanced. This year a massive tv was installed over the fireplace. You may not spend a lot of time inside but if you need to for a while, then you will appreciate that new addition to the condo.Wendy and her staff ensure that everything will be perfect for your stay at Barrier Dunes.

Lovely accomodations

We just got back from spending 12 nights at Sea Breeze at Cape San Blas. The accomodations were lovely. Nicely decorated and it was stocked with almost everything you could need. Fully equipped kitchen, good information about the area, games, puzzles, books and movies. We enjoyed the accomodations very much. Comfortable bed. Barrier Dunes is a very friendly place. All the people we met were nice and come back regularly. Very dog friendly. Laid back atmosphere. The beach is wide with white sand. We enjoyed walking our dog on the beach and watching people fish. The 2 pools are lovely but are not heated. The water was way too cold to swim in the pools. That was disappointing. We were there during a cold snap and we knew that could happen. We would like to come back again.

I'm so glad you enjoyed Sea Breeze & Barrier Dunes. It is a VERY friendly community for sure! Barrier Dunes does have a heated pool in March, April, October & November. I'm sorry about the cold snap...you had just missed 2 weeks in the 70s when you arrived. I look forward to having you back!

Sea Breeze 52 at Barrier Dunes

My family has enjoyed the Barrier Dunes for the past couple of years. We have chosen to stay in the same condo because it is exactly what was promised. The beach is wonderful and we loved bringing the dogs with us to the beach. The community is great and everyone is friendly. I highly recommend spending your vacation on the Cape and staying at one of the Barrier Dunes condos. You will not be sorry.

Perfection - if you're wondering where to book, choose this!!

The condo far exceeded our expectations in location, space, comfort, cleanliness, amenities and more! This was our first trip to Cape San Blas and I spent a good amount of time researching places to rent - I cannot recommend Wendy's property enough!! My husband and I are in our mid 30's and brought our 2 year old labradoodle for her first visit to the ocean - it was a 9 hour trip from Nashville, and as we rounded the bend to the Cape and saw the houses and water - we were immediately hooked. The directions to the condo were easy to follow, the keypad made entrance easy, and we were surprised at how spacious it was! Here are a few highlights: - You can't be much closer to the beach than if you were right on top of the waves. Just steps from the door and you're at the pool or on the sand. - The beach itself is PERFECT - you're at the northern part of the cape and each day we walked a little to the left and had the entire space to ourselves - day and night. The views, the sand, the water, the sunsets are just perfect. - I visited the pool just once in the late afternoon to read and it's beautiful and comfortable overlooking the ocean. - We were able to find "tradin post" market for beer, wine, and a last-minute pizza for dinner one night. We also bought food there to cook, and went to Cone Heads for drinks and food several times - it's right across the street from the condo area! - One day we went to the state park just to the left of the condo entrance and rented a canoe to roam around the crystal clear waters. Another day we drove to the tip of the cape and hiked to the abandoned shrimp boat, where we watched a fisherman bring in a shark and release it - *warning that there were CRAZY amounts of flies that I may never forget, but that sounds typical in Sept/Oct in that area - it's where the tree stumps are and about a mile hike in. The entire trip was spent relaxing - we swam, caught 10+ crabs with the nets, explored the Cape and started planning our next trip. The deck on the condo is perfect for pre-sunset dinner - and the star-watching and sunsets on the beach are incredible! Bring plenty of sunscreen, a beach blanket or two, a beach umbrella and you're set!

GREAT PLACE TO GET AWAY!

We weren’t sure how the Cape faired after the hurricane last year. I can tell you, they have done an amazing job on the entire cape.The beach is just beautiful! We were lucky in that the weather was a couple of degrees cooler for us. The water is so clear we could watch the little fish and crabs swim around. My Labrador tried his hardest to catch them. So did the 11 year old boy we brought with us.Everyone on the beach is so friendly. A couple of men actually played frisbee with my dog. That was a first for us! I didn’t know he could catch a frisbees from the air!We stayed so close to the beach we could hear the waves rolling in at night. Maybe next year we can stay a little longer.

Wonderful getaway

We really enjoyed our stay at Sea Breeze. The condo was very well equipped and comfortable. The few steps (no stairs) to the beach was so convenient. The beach itself was lovely...and never crowded. We met some very nice people and plan to return to this little treasure again!!!

Lovely 2 week stay at Sea Breeze

Our stay at Sea Breeze was wonderful. It is a very clean unit with cheery beach decor. Comfortable furnishings and a well stocked kitchen made our stay feel like home. We enjoyed using the outdoor grill and loved using the poker set and glancing through the guest books. Wendy was very easy to work with. She responded quickly to phone calls, emails and texts as we were planning our trip, during our stay and even after we got home. Highly recommend this unit and Wendy.

Absolutely wonderful place to visit!

if you love the beach, and hate crowds, dislike high rise condos, this is the place for you and your family! Very family oriented and everywhere on the Cape dogs are welcome. At Barrier Dunes they go out of their way to make sure you have all you need for yourself and your dogs. We absolutely recommend this place for your beach vacation.

Awesome beach vacation

Just got back home from a great Cape San Blas beach vacation. Stayed at Sea Breeze at Barrier Dunes. Great place which was immaculate and contained everything we needed such as cooking supplies and utensils. The condo was only steps to the beach which was beautiful even though it took a real pounding from the hurricane . Our Yorkie totally loved the beach and had loads of fun chasing sea foam and dried sea weed. My wife fell in love with a lab puppy who couldn’t chase her for falling all over himself. Great place to visit and vacation!!!

Beautiful, well appointed, spacious place to stay and convenient to the beach!

Cape San Blas remains a fantastic choice for a relaxing, nature oriented beach vacation and the townhouse Sea Breeze in Barrier Dunes is a very good choice for accommodations! Sea Breeze is quite close to the beach and the Barrier Dunes pool, access to both was truly convenient. Sea Breeze is so clean and spacious, and decorated with fun, casual beach furnishings. The kitchen is very well stocked, with lots of spices, and cleaning supplies and high quality dishes. The beds were quite comfortable and the linens were in perfect condition. We appreciated the high quality beach chairs. Barrier Dunes is still undergoing just a few post hurricane renovations, but the neighborhood is mostly in very good shape and the construction was not intrusive on our experience at all. Wendy Jackson communicated everything we needed to know about the unit and she was so very friendly and responsive! We hope to rent from her again.Hurricane Michael has changed the shape of the state park and killed some of the trees on the cape, but it is still a beautiful place and it is easy to find fun. Taking long walks with our little terrier, floating in the pool and roasting marshmallows over a fire on the beach were some of the good times my sons and I enjoyed at Barrier Dunes. We managed to see manatee (a rare occurrence), sea turtles, rays and small reef sharks while kayaking on the bay. Our kayaks were rented through Happy Ours Kayak; the owners are very friendly and knowledgeable. Check out Peachy’s Beach Eats for surprisingly good and healthy food in a simple, ultra casual environment. Coneheads still has ice cream and Weber’s makes some of the best donuts we have ever eaten! Piggly Wiggly in Port St. Joe is the best place for groceries. We also found Provisions in Port St. Joe to provide really good food in a pleasant traditional atmosphere. Vacation with Cape Escape on Cape San Blas, you will have fun!!!
